This Christmas tree stands on the second floor of the Washington County Courthouse. It honors all the veterans in foreign countries who don’t have the chance to celebrate the holiday season.
GIS coordinator Dewy Royer said veterans have been honored for nearly eight years.
This tradition will likely continue for the foreseeable future.
The tradition was started by Lil Perry when she was county assessor.
